We are heart-broken to miss our annual "Thanksgiving the Jazz Standard." So this year, we are coming to you, with never-before-seen videos and more.
Tune in Friday, November 27th at 7:30PM EST to a livestream (right here at www.mariaschneider.com or on Facebook). Afterwards, it'll be streamable at your leisure through Monday, November 30th, 11:00AM EST.
Before you tune in, bring in the smells and tastes of the room by ordering out a little barbecue (Blue Smoke is my favorite!), turn down the lights, light a candle, and let us transport you, first to the Jazz Standard with a videos from our July & Nov. 2019 performances. Also see Marie Le Claire's fabulous never-seen video (outtakes from our new GRAMMY-nominated recording Data Lords) from our recording session. Lastly, the band will reunite on Zoom to talk about music, life, and to tell you how much we miss you!
35% of recording & download proceeds at www.mariaschneider.com from Nov. 27th-30th will go to the musicians in the band, and 100% of “Additional Support” given at point of purchase will go to the musicians as well.

Concert in the Garden has been selected for inclusion into the prestigious National Recording Registry. The new recordings bring the total number of titles on the registry to 550, a small part of the Library of Congress' vast recorded-sound collection of nearly 3 million items.
